In today’s world, the responsibility for life safety and property protection face a wide array of threats, dangers and emergencies – from fire and intrusions to violence and natural disasters. In these highly challenging environments, both business and commercial properties must be well prepared and equipped with appropriate fire and life-safety systems, and capable of communicating quickly and effectively in the event of an emergency.
By bringing the management of multiple systems together to a single point of control, you can strengthen the ability to identify problems, respond appropriately, manage the situation, and return to normal operations. We came up with 5 advantages of electronic security and safety systems over traditional security measures.
1) Electronic Security Keys are Difficult to Duplicate.
While physical keys can be copied very easily, duplicating electronic security keys requires a much higher degree of sophistication. This makes your access system much more secure than it could ever be with physical keys.
2) You NEVER Have to change the locks.
An electronic user database or electronic keys means that you never have to change locks at your sites. If a key card or fob is ever lost, it can be removed from the database and a new one can be issued. If an employee leaves your company, his or her access rights can be deleted within seconds. This greatly lowers your overall exposure to risk.
3) Capture images of unauthorised access.
Having CCTV or security cameras allows you piece of mind knowing that if anyone does enter your premises you’ve got evidence of it. With modern security cameras allowing viewing through an app, the property owner can monitor their property anytime and anywhere. They do say a picture speaks a thousand words.
4) Visually confirm who is at a door before giving them access to your property.
A Video and audio door entry system allows you to speak to the caller before either letting them in or releasing the door remotely via an electronic release mechanism. A video entry system operates in the same way but has the added security of allowing you to see an image of the caller.
5)Keep an eye on your property anywhere in the world.
Some benefits of electronic security systems is they can incorporate your current technology such as IPads, phones and watches and can be integrated to be controlled and monitored by you, on the condition that there is an internet connection.
